Nick, I agree with you 100%. Ishihara has already proven that he mainly did it because he has a problem not with only the people in his country who watch it. Mainly the Otaku population, but also has a problem with Foreigners watching it. As I said in another thread Ishihara has said repeatedly that he thinks that Otakus are genetically corrupt people.

Let's face it people. This bill is coming into effect under strange circumstances. I can guarantee that if the anime industry and if a lot of the people of Japan had a say in this bill it would have passed without explicit definitions of what inappropriate material is. I also think that Ishihara's prefered media the novel would have been included which like Nick it is not.

I have to say that some anime make me very uncomfortable. But, if you look at my history you see that I drop these anime when I find them uncomfortable. With the internet, netflix, hulu, and yes crunchyroll - access to any type of anime is readily available so lets just make this simple. You have to be 18 to watch items rated such. There is no reason that the industry can't regulate itself like gaming, music and movies. If they do this now - they can avoid the legal aspects. That way - if you want to watch women with big boobs fight with swords you can (sometimes that is a great way to escape from the madness of the world we live in) or if you want to watch more intelligent anime that avoids low brow you can do that.

The bill has already gotten resistance. Some of the Biggest names in anime and Manga are going to avoid The Tokyo International Anime Fair this year. I know that Jump, Kadokawa, Kadonsha, and a couple others will not be going to TAF this year. Both Jump and Kadokawa have forbidden anything based upon their works to show up either. These companies have also announced that they are holding there on Convention on the same days as TAF in Akihabara.
